SD Street Eats Food Truck

Next up in my food truck adventures is SD Street Eats. This was actually the first truck we visited, and the one that inspired us to try others. Seared ahi and braised short ribs off a truck? I was skeptical at first, since I'm used to "roach coaches", but these guys changed my mind.

Here's the ahi. Perfect.


And here's the Asian-braised short ribs. Tender and saucy.


The slaw that came with both dishes was super-spicy with wasabi. It made my nose run and my throat burn, and I loved it. And look, wood sporks!

Their menu changes pretty frequently. Currently they're offering smoked bacon mac & cheese and a Brandt burger. As soon as they're back in my area for lunch, I'm there!

Baby Artichoke Risotto

Baby artichokes are so cute, how could you resist them? I hadn't made a risotto in at least a year, so it was time to remedy that. I used this recipe from the NY Times with no alterations.

Pretty, huh?


Unfortunately, I didn't trim the chokes well enough, and ended up with some tough leaves. Oh, and this recipe makes a LOT of risotto, so you'll probably have leftovers. If so, make arancini. Fried cheesy rice? Yes, please.
